Amy Nash (Briana Evigan) works at the St. Martin Animal House, but not in the part that has animals with cancer or mange, but the wing that only has cute Hollywood bunnies and kitties. Her husband David (Sean Faris) has just bought them a beautiful home. The electricity is not turned on except for the security system, outdoor lights, basement lights, and electronic doors and walls...they all seem to have their own power supply. Like Ed Wood would say, "Who will notice?" To make the evening more romantic they leave their cell phones in the car!!!!!
The film digresses into a combination home abduction/ "Home Alone" film. It turns out the house has drugs stashed in it and the owners want it back...but it is not that simple. They also want the witnesses dead and there is something else in the house they want...but what? And how does this tie into the opening scene where a Colombian scatters his gray matter all over the inside of a confessional? Dolph Lundgren and Jon Huertas play the bad guys.
Most of the film is a cat and mouse game being played between the two sides with David being the punching bag for any stray bullet. The dialouge was boring and having Dolph recite lines that are already the pits, doesn't raise the "thriller" level. At one point David, learning over a dead body shouts at Dolph, "C'mon man!" That was my MST moment which highlighted the poor writing of this thriller. The overall plot idea was decent, the execution is not gripping. This would be the third feature at the drive-in.
No-f-bombs that I recall, no nudity, brief "Natalie Portman" style sex scene (bra stays on). C'mon man!
